The first Gillingham and Shaftesbury Show food and crafts market is being held today, Sunday.
Show secretary James Cox says the open-air event was arranged to support local vendors following the cancellation of the main August show. That annual event provides an important shop window for many Shaftesbury area businesses.
James says the number of stalls today has exceeded his expectation. Listen at 6:41, where James talks about the event and one of the unique stands.
